Envision Community Church
Accountability: Co-Pastor Team
- While making plenty of room for people with a wide spectrum of beliefs, the teaching of ECC is grounded in the beliefs about God consistent with the early followers of Jesus as expressed in the Apostle’s Creed.
- As a community, we are committed to living relationally according to the values of the Highlands Church ethos, which is spoken at every gathering of ECC:
Married, divorced and single here, it’s one family that mingles here.
Conservative and liberal here, we’ve all gotta give a little here.
Big and small here, there’s room for us all here.
Doubt and believe here, we all can receive here.
LGBTQ and straight here, there’s no hate here
Woman, non binary and man here, everyone can here.
Whatever your race here, for all of us grace here.
In imitation of the ridiculous love Almighty God has for each of us and all of us, let us live and love without labels!
- We are committed to being a fully inclusive faith community.
- Equip and empower our faith community to do the work to which the church is called.
- Conduct work in accordance with ECC core values and policies laid out in our Team Member Handbook.
Note: While the Elder Board recognizes clear descriptions of responsibilities and qualifications for ECC positions are needed to help pastors and staff fulfill their roles, we also don’t want these descriptions to reduce or oversimplify the relational, dynamic, organic ways that ministry happens. A list of responsibilities and skills cannot represent a person, so we offer this description as a starting point in any conversation about hiring or evaluating ECC pastors or staff.
